Timothy Michael Baker


Timothy M. Baker studies late antique and medieval religious history and manuscript traditions, with a particular emphasis on high medieval monastic theology and exegesis. His doctoral work explores twelfth- and thirteenth-century Cistercian texts, investigating Cistercian interpretations of the monastery as a sacred space and a sacred bridge between the world of creation and the realm of the divine. Within this sacred architecture, monks pursued ascent into God.
